Indie Music Matters is a music development service aimed at bringing funded music projects & individual funding opportunities to artists in the region.
The Bootstrapping Bands project will support independent musicians in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire to write, produce and release better new music.
This activity will take place in the first half of 2020. You need two songs ready to go. But part of this project is about pairing local producers with local artists to help shape their songs through pre-production to make them as good as they can be!
We have securred funding for 14 artists in Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire to work with 7 local producers in 6 local recording studios on 2 x singles.
Funding covers pre-production, recording & production, mixing, mastering and distribution.
* APPLY NOW *
APPLICATION DEADLINE Monday 2nd December!
We are running six music industry panel evenings as part of the Bootstrapping Bands masterclass.
You will hear advice & tips and network with experts from across the industry.
To reduce the number of no-shows, these panels include a refundable ticket and are open to all artists whether you've appled for the funding above or not!
N.B All but 80p (Eventbrite's fees!) of your ticket deposit will be refunded after you have attended the event.

Independent music is the fastest growing area of the music industry.
And funding can mean the difference between splashing about in the shallows and swimming in the deep.
